Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

We highly enjoyed our stay and had no issues. Condo was very clean. So clean that my daughter walked straight into the sliding door bc she thought it was open. The kitchen was fully equipped with what we needed to prepare meals. The condo is decorated nicely. We felt at home! Will definetly stay again!

Gulf shores surf and racquet 403C

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed our stay. Condo was clean and it was a quick walk to beach.

Did not like the fact that there was not a door on the bathroom connected to the bedroom. Was very inconvenient\awkward when someone had to get up and go to bathroom in middle of night. When we first entered condo the curtains were hanging off the pole in one bedroom but it was easily fixed.

Great condo, cleaning crew could be better

  • 3 of 5

The cleaning crew was not thorough at all! It appeared as if they sprayed cleaning products on places & forgot to actually clean. For example, the refrigerator and both bathtubs had circular spray marks that had not be wiped. Dried up product just remained. Utensils in the drawers were dirty too! Also, both twin beds were full of sand under the top cover. I'm not even sure the sheets had been changed or cleaned as all beds had hair in them. Needless to say I spent the first few hours cleaning.

There are a few breakable accessories in the living room that we had put up from our toddler, the balcony door doesn't lock and the master bathroom has no door for privacy.

My family liked the condo in general, just not this particular unit. The view was awesome, the beach was easily accessible & the pool was amazing!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your recent stay! Saddened to hear of the housekeeping issues you encountered and surprised that nothing was reported to us for your stay. We certainly could have sent them back to address all of those complaints. Laundering sheets in the units is no longer permitted so the linens come from a laundry service. Our maintenance department can evaluate that balcony door lock, however some of those issues fall to the association and we are not permitted to make a permanent repair. Thankfully your family enjoyed the complex and the amenities. We appreciate your feedback!

Not impressed

  • 2 of 5

I'm very unhappy with the condo we rented between April 2-8, 2016. The unit showed little attention to detail and maintenance has been allowed to slide over time.

The following is a list of things wrong with our condo (403C). Yes, some items are small, but all of them add up to make the place feel less than homey, clean, and welcoming. It is certainly NOT as nice as we expected for the amount of money we spent. I've stayed in nicer 2 star hotels than this condo.

- kitchen closet slider doors off track

- toaster handle missing

- crumbs under glass in living room coffee table

- living room pillows have stains and spots on them

- slider door to balcony is not smooth and hard to close

- screen on slider to balcony is off track and does not work

- various spots and splattering a evident on the walls of the main living space, and elsewhere in the condo.

- paint in the master bathroom shower is pealing above the shower.

- master bath shower head sprays in wide pattern because of partially plugged holes from deposits.

- master bedroom sheets had over 5 obvious hairs on them near the top of the bed when we pulled them down to go to sleep, so we don't think they were washed or changed.

- toilet in bathroom rocks and needs to be tightened to the floor.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your recent stay! I certainly appreciate your attention to detail as to where the unit is concerned. I will agree some of the items are small but ever so apparent, and most certainly need attention. The majority of the issues could have been addressed had we only known of your discomforts while vacationing. I’m not sure what is more unfortunate the fact that 5 hairs were discovered or the fact that it was not reported. We strive to meet all of our guest needs and expectations however it is very difficult when you are not presented the chance. Each of these grievances will be evaluated and attended too to the best of our ability. We appreciate your feedback!

403c Surf and Racquet Gulf Shores

  • 4 of 5

Unit was clean. Recent update throughout. Kitchen was well equipped with cooking essentials. Refrigerator malfunctioned during our stay but was quickly repaired after notification. The freezer does not have an ice maker which is a negative. No one wants to spend time emptying and filling ice trays while on vacation. Shower heads in both baths need to be replaced. Water pressure is great.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your recent stay! So nice to hear you found the unit clean and you notice the kitchen was properly stocked. Glad to know our staff assisted you quickly with the appliance repair. Sorry for the inconvenience of not having an ice-maker. While I will admit filling ice trays can be a bit of a negative, purchasing bagged ice is always an option. I will have the shower-heads evaluated by our maintenance staff, for possible replacement if needed. We appreciate your feedback and value your input.
